Imagining Afrabia – AWAN Festival Exhibition

5 March '20 at 6:00 pm - 29 March '20 at 5:00 pm

We invite you to the launch of Arab Women Artists Now Festival for an evening of free exhibition followed by ticketed music concert and networking!
This public viewing of the “Imagining Afrabia” exhibition event is free and open to all but registration is essential to attend.
The ultimate aim is to increase understanding around Arab women’s diverse realities and concerns, shed light on the art works made by Arab women artists, while providing an alternative, more nuanced narrative surrounding the Arab region and its peoples.
Rayan ElNayal’s Imagining Afrabia is a timeless realm, a third space embodying a shared African and Arab heritage.
She takes the visitor on a journey through time and space to uncover long lost cities and redesign a future for those too often forgotten.
“As an Afro-Arab living in London, Rayan has always been drawn to the complexities of ethnic hybridity and the ‘third space’ that we often occupy” Rayan Elnayal
Rayan Elnayal is a Sudanese-British artist/designer interested in multiculturalism in art and design.
The exhibition will be running from the 5th – 29th March 2020.
Curator : Ghazaleh Zogheib
